The student suffered a wound to his lower leg, a Queensland Ambulance spokesman confirmed to Yahoo7 News.

The spokesman said the boy was in a stable condition during transit.

He said there had been conflicting reports as to whether the boy had been bitten by a snake or suffered the wound from “bumping” into something in the playground.
